  1. You must agree, Josh, that *this* weekend, there is a very good case to be made against the Leafs being the national game.

    • Yes, except the ratings probably still wouldn’t justify it unfortunately.

      With college hoops and the Brier, I probably won’t see any HNIC tomorrow anyway.

      • I agree that 99% of the time, the ratings for a Leaf game (even an irrelevant one) will be better than the ratings for a Sens game. But that doesn’t mean I’ll stop complaining about it in the comments here. ;)

        • See my post with this week’s NHL ratings. The Sens have just as many (possibly more) national games than the Leafs on CBC the last 3 weeks of the season. Not all in the best timeslots of course.

          • Two of those Senators national games are at terrible times. The March 31 game, Senators at Flyers, is at 1000h Pacific. A week later it is the Senators at Devils at 1200h Pacific. There is a Friday night HNIC special next week, Montreal at Ottawa. It is prime time in the east but not great for Pacific and Mountain viewers.

            The CBC should take a look at the standings and make most of the Leafs games regional from here on in unless the Leafs go on a six game winning streak.

        • The Sabres-Senators game, at the very least should be shown from eastern Ontario to Newfoundland. This game will affect the standings more than the Flyers-Leafs game. I complained to the CBC by phone and by email.

  2. The Oilers @ Avs game is on Sportsnet West.

  3. Two thumbs up for RDS joining the Senators game in progress to make it a doubleheader.
